Default High Traction Arms???

I noticed on RCMart that they have high traction arms for the cyclone, but no one else has these; they just have "arms". Are there actually 2 seperate part numbers or are the curent production "high traction"?

i think they are the non-graphite arms as comes on the Cyclone "S"... the name is a little misleading, as they are regular black nylon arms, not the harder graphite material found on the Cyclone and Pro4 arms.

by "high traction", im thinking they prolly generate more traction by being softer material.

The high traction arms are much softer and work well in medium to low grip situations. Being that they flex more, they don't break too often either. They're very similar to the 20% arms Corally has.

I run them and prefer them being that I race outdoors all year.

I recently put a set of these arms on, and was very impressed, it is a pity i only use this car for a toy clubbie car now. I wish i had tried them a year ago.

or anyone running rubbers on asphalt give them a crack.

Default WCE Diff

Hey Guys

Anyone know where I can get a WCE rear diff for a cyclone, Its the alloy/purple one and it seems much smoother than the plastic one I have on my cylone back version.

cheers
